DescriptionGary is in the Calumet district, formerly one of the country's greatest steel producing areas. Midway between the vast iron ore beds of Minnesota and the great coal region to the south, Gary was chosen in 1906 as the site of the main plant of the U.S. Steel Corp. Gary also lies at the western end of scenic US 12, which follows the Lake Michigan shoreline through Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore before crossing into Michigan northeast of Michigan City.
